HIV/AIDS at WikiLeaks: 10 cables have AIDS news (so far)

As of today WikiLeaks has released only about 0.5% (1344 cables out of 251,287 total) of the leaked State Department cables, creating headlines around the world. Only 10 of the 1344 already released include the word HIV (a good search term for finding AIDS-related information). If you click on a cable, you can use the local search in your browser (often control-F) to find the HIV references quickly.

Here are the 10 cables that mention HIV, starting with the most recent:
10LUANDA84
09PRETORIA2245
09KAMPALA1197
09LONDON2005
09STATE80163
09STATE37561
09STATE37566
08STATE116392
07BEIJING1840
01PRETORIA1173

Best estimate of the total number of cables with HIV/AIDS information but not yet released: about 1800.

Also see our news blog of WikiLeaks tweets, at www.RepliCounts.org (in a green box on the right of that page).

Note: Please let us know of sites that include a search of all the released cables at once. To find the 10 above, we had to download a copy of the cables into a folder, then search locally for 'HIV'.
